1,000 Backpacks Per Month!
One of the things our homeless friends know us best for are the backpacks we deliver. When you’re on the street, you need to be able to carry all of your belongings with you at all times, which is why it’s so common to see homeless people with backpacks.
Currently, we deliver a little over 200 backpacks a month (when we have the supplies) – this just isn’t enough. We need to make a bigger difference. We need to supply at least one thousand backpacks filled with survival essentials to our homeless neighbors.
The backpacks we deliver, directly to those in need, are filled with items such as new socks, wash cloths, toiletries, medical supplies, non perishable food, sports drinks, and depending on the season sometime weather related items such as sun hats or winter hats and gloves.
If you want to help us reach this goal, please consider sponsoring a backpack!
100,000 Homeless People Helped
In America, there are nearly three quarters of a million people who spend the night homeless each night. We want to help as many as we can. Our pie in the sky goal is to help every one we can, but realistically, we believe we can help at least one hundred thousand homeless individuals. We can help them survive, we can make sure they know somebody cares, we might even be able to put them to work and get them off the streets! Help us make that dream a reality!
